Who doesn’t love to be spoiled?
I felt very special, spoiled and pampered last weekend on mother’s day. It wasn’t owing to any expensive gift or box of chocolates and flowers or stuff straight from the shelves of shops but the genuine & unconditional love that my little ones showed me and tried and put on their best of behavior for the a day to make it super special for me. It’s one of those days when the boys stopped squabbling, woke up early, did their stuff without being reminded or told repeatedly and actually came out and helped me with the breakfast and they even set the table up and cleared the plates afterwards.
I sometimes wish Mother’s day would come more regularly….ha!I must be dreaming.
It felt wonderful to look over the precious art work that they created with their tiny fingers and expanding their limits of creativity and every little crease on the paper screamed loudly that I was definitely the most precious girl in their life. The younger one made a beautiful card for me with a paper swan Origami, and the elder one went the mile to actually create flowers out of tissue and pipe cleaners. The boys also went shopping for breakfast with my hubby and cooked up a very decent spread best of which was there was no grumbling or arguing or drawing long faces. The weather in Sydney was rather English but that hardly mattered when you had a home so full of warmth and love and hugs all around. Topping the breakfast was a steaming cup of Cappuccino with a Nespresso Pod and foaming milk and yes! I admit to having delicious Swiss praline chocolates with my cuppa. But best of all was seeing the boys just trying so hard to make it special for me.
